New Delhi: Indian cricket board officials on Tuesday warned of the "strictest punishment" after giving a final hearing to five players named in a match-fixing report, including former skipper Mohammed Azharuddin.Briefing reporters after the hearings at a New Delhi hotel, Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) president Dr A C Muthiah said the Board "had not taken any decision" on the fate of the five players but would so "at the earliest opportunity."The CBI report, released earlier this month, named Azharuddin, Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Jadeja, Nayan Mongia and Ajay Sharma. The atmosphere after the meeting was muddied as a senior BCCI official made a surprise attack on the CBI.The Board's vice-president Kamal Morarka said there was "more corruption in the CBI than in cricket". Mr Madhavan reacted angrily to the comment."I have worked more than 30 years in the CBI. I would strongly refute that statement. I know the working of the CBI very well," he said. BCCI chief Muthiah said the comments "were not the views" of the cricketing body.
